Earlier today, an entire family, called a pod, of Risso’s Dolphins was driven into the Taiji Killing Cove. Although their fate remains unclear, we are hoping that none will be harmed, although it is very likely that at least a few will be taken captive and shipped off (likely to irresponsible facilities). If the pod is lucky, the remaining dolphins will be chased back out to sea.
The dolphin drive hunts that take place in Taiji are beyond cruel. Because I would like to keep all content on this website safe for people of all ages, I will not go in to the details of what the hunters often do to the dolphin’s they drive into the cove.
